140 years ago today - Sep 26, 1881

Heber J. Grant expresses his disappointment about his racehorse being disqualified from the upcoming race in Salt Lake City: "I had counted considerable, however, on Hyrum's winning the race and the horse becoming enough of a public favorite that I could sell him for a nice round sum." Heber becomes an apostle in 1882, and horse racing remains legal in Utah until 1913.
